So it’s going to be a girl, which from a purely crochet point of view was the news I was hoping for! I had a gorgeous pattern for little baby booties and ONE EVENING in which to make them! Eeek! Sadly I couldn’t get on with the pattern and wasn’t sure that the sizing was going to work out so I went with a paid pattern I already had.
The pattern for the booties is this one from The Lovely Crow. I bought it hoping to make some for Noot’s first Christmas but obviously with a new baby and a pre-schooler I did not have the time. The pattern works up really nicely and is very clear, with photos to help the more complex steps. I used these beautiful little flowers from Attic 24 to decorate them. (I used the Stylecraft classique cotton in hot pink, shell pink and soft lime.)
I think they look pretty amazing in the photos.
